Over the past few days, an interesting rumor has surfaced indicating that forward Casey Mittelstadt may be available in Buffalo. Given the number of players they need to sign, the potential salary demand, and the promising young talent upfront, it's not surprising.

Andrew Peters broke the news, and it didn't take long for speculation surrounding the Canadiens to emerge. It makes sense, considering Buffalo has many promising forward prospects but lacks depth on defense, which is the opposite for the Habs.

Interestingly, the speculations may not be so far-fetched, as a reputable insider has just commented on this rumor.

"On #LetsGoBuffalo Casey Mittelstadt: Nice job @TheInstigator76, who reported Friday the Sabres are shopping him. While a team source told me they're not "actively" trying to move him, multiple teams say BUF is listening. Mittelstadt prefers to stay, I'm told, but he is in play."

This adds an intriguing twist. Mittelstadt is a 25-year-old center with 42 points in 51 games this season, making him the leading scorer for the Sabres.

Would you like Kent Hughes to try to acquire him? The proposed deal on Saturday includes Justin Barron and the Jets' first-round pick in 2024. Would you do it?
